Re: Complementing a girl. When is it wrong
Id say paranoid but your logical grasp on the concept doesnt seem too far off.
A compliment can be used in many ways depending on the personality of the target, you want to use them to a girl who maybe doesnt seem as outgoing and is a a little shy, to boost her self esteem and get her to open up more. However if this target knows she is attractive then you want to stay away from compliments, dont give her what she is so used to getting, dont even acknowledge her!
Also, you can sometimes supplement a neg with a compliment to make it less harsh, i sometimes neg first, then follow up with a slight compliment just so she doesnt loose interest completely.

Stick a £50 note onto your forehead and talk to a stripper.. If you can get her to not think about the note, you are gold.
